MAISON-ORION_CACTUS

Earlier this year I joined the Los Angeles Cactus & Succulent Society. Next Saturday and Sunday, May 30th and 31st, 2015, they are hosting their annual drought tolerant plant festival. If you haven’t heard, California is in the midst of a wicked drought, but we still need beautiful plants in our homes. See the link below for all the details.
